Epics of Gilgamesh
« on: January 01, 2008, 07:59:44 AM »
Anyone here read anything about the Epics
 of Gilgamesh?

I read some general outlines about the epics
of Gilgamesh. these epics were supposedly excavated  from the library of King Ashurbanipal at Nineveh.

These epics are said to reveal closely the same story about the Great flood of Noahs day as is found in the OT. during a time when ancient Samaria had Nation States, a list of kings from that era indicates Gilgamesh was a ruler of Uruk and his friendship with Enkidu.

These epics of Gilgamesh are so I read a series of Mesopotamia tales.

That it may closely reveal the account of the Great flood of Noahs day as the OT is interesting, but before I wish to spend much time chasing fables or tales in any depth I thought I might first ask if anyone here has read any of this epics of Gilgamesh put together by bits and fragments of what could be excavated and even more translated.

I am not a good reader or very fast so my daughter read the dead sea scrolls to me a few years back, it was rather deep for me to grasp but enjoyed hearing it read. The epics of  Gilgamesh appear to be along the same line of study to me.

He turned down the opportunity to become immortal.  Sichin translates it in such a way as to make that offer a technological plausibility.
I went to church; but, the Church wasn't on the program!  JESUS WANTS HIS BODY BACK!!  MEET WITHOUT HUMAN HEADSHIP!!!

Hello Reformer,

Thanks for the information you received from the subject
It looks like you saved me a whole bunch of futile time in study of some mans translation into how to get there by going around Christ,  truth is when it comes to immorality there is no other way to immortality other than what Jesus Christ has already done, no matter how any man translates it. I have even found some who without directly saying in so many words that if we do this, that and thus, eat the right food and yada yada yada, (tinkling brass and clanging symbols) we can live here in this world in our flesh and blood bodies forever but we have to do all the work ourselves and sacrifice this and that
to be able to do this, if any of this was true then Jesus Christ died in vain is what I have in answer to religion, there is no more sacrifice outside what Jesus Christ has already done.

Thanks again for the heads up, I do like to study and most likely would have descerned this deception in Sichins translation of this subject, apart from that anything to do with history itself has always held my interest, then again we could study it all our days and never come to the knowledge of the truth unless we are given some descernment to see beyond the letter and the words of men.
